Current lake conditions and Fall Salmon River Outlook

Current lake conditions and Fall Salmon River Outlook

I know it’s been quite a while since my last post, but we have been very busy.
The salmon fishing on Lake Ontario is currently red-hot and has been the best I’ve seen in at least the last 5 years as we progress through July limit catches are taking place daily.
The Lake has also been producing a fairly steady amount of steelhead and our fall winter fishery is currently looking very promising and hopefully not the slow grind that we experienced the last 2 years, it does appear that our comeback is taking place and I’m excited.
We currently have openings on the Lake boat from now right on through mid-September or even later conditions permitting, we try to run both a.m. and p.m. charters so give us a call for availabilities if you would like to get in on some of this great fishing.
Our fall calendar for salmon is almost full and we only have a couple of days left available due to cancellations and nonpayment of deposits.
These are my current available dates
September 15, 16, 17 and 18
October 10 11 12 14 15 and the 23rd through the end of the month.
By the 23rd we should be seeing the bulk of our steelhead coming in and that would most likely end up being our primary target.
Our November and December calendars are also beginning to fill so if you would like to experience some beautiful float trips give us a call at 315-298-4291

UPDATE

UPDATE

Hard to believe but it seems spring is here, If everything goes to plan our lake boat “the Seaduction” will be splashing down in its new early home port in Sodus bay at Krenzer Marine.
Normally the Brown trout fishing in that region is phenomenal hence our move. Our calendar is starting to fill but there are still plenty of openings we plan on staying there as long as the fishing opportunities remain best for our clients and will most likely remain in Sodus until June.
We still have a good number of openings for the spring Brown trout charters on the Lake and a few prime days in April still remain for either the lake or the Salmon River in Pulaski.

For smaller groups, one or 2 people only. We offer a more affordable package in our smaller boats on the south east shore these trips can be very productive for Brown trout given wind direction and water temperatures with catch rates every bit as good and sometimes even better than the big boat.
Don’t miss out on your trip of a lifetime so far things are shaping up beautifully and I personally feel it’s going to be a phenomenal spring give us a call at 315-298-4291 and we will get you on the books and into the fish

EARLY 2017 LAKE SCOUTING TRIP 01/20/17

EARLY 2017 LAKE SCOUTING TRIP 01/20/17

So Capt. Rich and I decided to have a captains play day on the Big lake today
Curiosity had us looking in the general vicinity of our new possible Spring port for the Seaduction
I would have to say the results look very promising
We have our spring calendar organized and we are now taking bookings for the big Lakes 2017 season. We are hoping to have the big boat on the water by April 1 to pursue our trophy Brown trout as our picture show we found them and they will be there in the spring.
If you would like some of this action don’t wait give me a call at 315-298-4291

I hope you enjoy these pictures

And so it begins fall salmon season, Pulaski, New York

And so it begins fall salmon season, Pulaski, New York

Hard to believe but once again we find ourselves looking at the end of summer and the arrival of our annual King and Coho salmon runs.

For the 1st time in roughly 3 years I am truly excited with the outlook of this fall.
Spending countless days on the Lake, IMG_7679both chartering and playing I have seen very positive signs of the increasing health in our fisheries.
As of this moment there are very very good numbers of both adult King and Coho salmon anywhere from 90 feet to 150 feet out in front of the salmon River.

Also this summer we caught an ample number of steelhead which appear to be quite healthy and averaging roughly 8+ pounds,image this is a good thing as the last 2 summers on the Lake produced very few steelhead hence the poor returning runs on the River last fall.
I feel quite confident that our steelhead season this year is going to be quite the improvement from last.
Although my personal calendar is basically full for this fall salmon season I do have a 2nd boat that is available with plenty of open dates for salmon season.
Please call if you are interested and we will do our best to accommodate your group.
We also still have plenty of available dates for steelhead throughout November and December

Remember don’t miss out on your trip of a lifetime, call us at 315-298-4291 and we will do our best to hook you up.
Hope to see you on the River with tight lines

Lake Ontario / Lake Oneida updates

Lake Ontario / Lake Oneida updates

Just A quick update
The fishing on the Eastern basin of Lake Ontario continues to be somewhat tough.
Most of the salmon that we are seeing are juveniles, and the Brown trout bite is spotty at best, although some of the Brown trout we are catching are mammoth.
Lake trout fishing is still consistent with limit catches being taken daily.
Reports from the Western end of the Lake are good it appears that there are plenty of fish and the reports that we are getting from our colleagues on the Canadian side of the lake are phenomenal.
Contrary to reports issued by state of New York we certainly have no shortage of bait on this end of the lake given this I expect to see our Kings start moving in in approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

Lake Oneida is currently fishing well for walleyes and smallmouth bass.
Limit catches have been the norm if one puts in their time.
For those of you looking for a summer getaway we still have openings for the big Lake as well as Lake Oneida.
Give us a call at 315-298-4291 and we will hook you up.
